the terrifying photo shopped secrets of president barack hussein obama. did you know his emotional name is hussein? the conspiracies about the president get even more conspiratorial than they have in years past. >>> we're beginning with a big deal, a story you will not see anywhere else, because it is an nbc news exclusive. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff has uncovered something that is not classified, but treated as one of the biggest secrets of this administration. it's something the administration has been fighting over with newspapers and with congress and with all different sorts of groups suing them who have been trying to contain what mike isikoff has gotten closer than anybody else to naming. and it is happening right in the midst of really big changes happening right now in national security in washington. today in washington, of course, was secretary of state john kerry's first day on the job. he was sworn in on friday after his confirmation hearing and his confirmation vote process that were frankly a breeze. in the end, the senate vote was nearly u
now. >> you were shocked when you heard that president obama had named mary jo white to lead the securities and exchange commission. and you wrote that she was a partner in a law firm that represented a lot of these big banks. you know, bank of america, goldman sachs, chase, aig, morgan stanley. you said, "she dropped out and made the move a lot of regulators make, leaving government to make bucket loads of money, working for the people she used to police." and i gather your great concern is that you don't want to see the country's top financial cop being indebted to the people who created the bank roe? >> right. yeah, absolutely. i mean, it's just simple common sense. i mean, you're sitting on $10 million, $15 million, however much money she made working there at debevoise and plimpton when she was a partner and you owe that money to this specific group of clients and now you're in charge of policing them, just psychologically think of that. it doesn't really work, you know? it doesn't really work in terms of how aggressive a prosecutor should be, what his attitude towards t
exploded during the bush years, obama added on top of that. let's remember all the sequester does is shave off a little bit of the built-in growth of government spending. over the next ten years, the budget, even with the sequester, will go from $3.5 trillion to $5.9 trillion. we're still going to get $2.4 trillion more spending. we're just not going to get $2.5 trillion more spending. i view the sequester as a very tiny step in the right direction. >> jared, you look at some of these figure, if you include the emergency money more hurricane sandy, that just means we've had a 30% increase since 2008. now under the so-called sequester, we'll have a 5% increase. it's not like we're ripping the government to shreds. >> look, the way this works is you get negative fiscal impulse when you do less then th year than you did last year. let's go to the non-partisan congressional budget office. they told us on tuesday this year they expect the economy to grow 1.4%. i don't think there's anybody listening to my voice on our financial news network of cnbc who likes that number, 1.4%. i suspect you don
. there isn't much overlap between critics of george w. bush and barack obama unless you are talking counterterrorism. members of code pink, a group founded during the bush administration to protest the policies of waterboard and detention made their voices heard at yesterday's confirmation hearing for john brennan as cia director. >> they won't even tell congress what country we are killing children in. >> please -- >> senator feinstein. >> if you could please expedite the removal. >> more important than the children of pakistan and yemen? are they more important? do your job! >> the hearing serve as a public discussion of the most controversial counterterrorism policies that began under president george w. bush and, in part, have continued and expanded under president obama. brennan's defense of the secrecy surrounding the administration's most questionable program, targeted assassinations using drone aircraft, was as opaque as the program itself. >> what we need to do is optimize transparency on these issues, but at the same time optimize secrecy and the protection of our national
. >> protesters repeatedly disrupt the confirmation hearing of obama's nominee for cia director john brennan over his support for drones and the targeted killings of u.s. citizens. >> people that were standing up here today, i think they really have a misunderstanding of what we do as a government and the care we take, and the agony we go through to make sure we do not have any collateral injuries or deaths. >> 8 codepink protesters are arrested. we will speak with the group's founder who after returning from pakistan to protest drones, personally went to the house of john brennan, not on the door. he invited her in. we will find out what they talked about. you also speak with jeremy scahill, author of the forthcoming book and movied andirty wars," and melvin goodman, author of, "national insecurity: the cost of american militarism." all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. john brennan, president of and is picked to head the cia, defended the administration's controversial counterterrorism policies during his senate co
. i was there in the whiter house briefing room yesterday when president obama came out and called on congress to take action to avoid those massive cuts to pentagon spending known as the sequester which kick in march 1st. if march can't pass a big bill, they ought to pass a small bill to delay the sequester for a few more months. house republicans led by john boehner immediately said no way. here we go again. the party of no opposing anything obama wants. we will tell you about that. also tell you the latest on drones and a lot more here on the full court press. but first, let's get the latest. lisa ferguson is here. well, she is not here. she is in los angeles with today's current news update. hi, lisa. good morning. >> close enough. los angeles, d.c. good morning, everyone. the president is in annapolis today after 10:00 this morning and atends the conference at the western annapolis hotel. vice president biden is swearing in john kerry as secretary at state from the state department and then later this evening, he is speaking at the house democr
that said barack obama or you gave people the option of clicking online on something that said mitt romney, more people would click on the thing that said barack obama. consistently. by a lot. in a controversial article last summer right in the heat of the campaign, an article that acknowledged what everybody else in the media already knew was true, but had not admitted outloud, the website buzz of feed finally put a headline on it and put it up in black and white. mitt romney is terrible for traffic. they mean web traffic. they did what essentially amounted to a control experiment in terms of people's interest online in the two candidates. look. 29 photos of baby barack obama versus 30 photos of mitt romney as a child. essentially, you're offering the same thing. reliably adorable childhood images of people you know now as full grown men. it's the same comparison, apples to apples. the photos of baby obama got just under 70,000 views. the photos of baby romney just over 6,000 views. that is worse than 10 to 1. okay, maybe it's a baby thing. how about if we age them a little. barack obama,
by obama have spiked particularly in yemen, somalia, afghanistan, and notably pakistan where over 360 drone strikes over the nine years, 2004 to 2013, have killed over 3,000 people. this data is not classified. and not even secret. but it is troubling. so troubling that the u.n. has just decided to launch an investigation on the impacts of drone strikes on thousands of civilians. question. will the u.n. human rights council rule that drone use violates international law do you think, pat buchanan? >> i don't think they l. if they do, john, it doesn't make any difference. but we really ought to be concerned about these drones. they're a tremendously effective weapon. they save our pilots and the rest of it. but the collateral damage, the killing of civilians, the killing of children, the tremendous alienation they've increased all over this region has resulted in al-qaida frankly getting a tremendous number of new recruits. are we recruiting more enemies than we're killing? that's the key question when you look to see how al-qaida is no longer just in afghanistan but six or seven other count
when he was nominated to be the cia director. and as an obama supporter of course i was shocked to find out who was crowned be kept on as obama secretary of defense but when he told people i found interesting and was the major reason i wanted to write this book and what he said was we are moving towards a smaller military that will do fewer things and be able to go fewer places which he felt was a terrible thing and he added i don't want to be a part of that kind of system that is going to retrench. my feeling has been we need a smaller military that will do fewer things and go to fewer places. so that is the kind of book i wanted to write. i thought that i should do it even though others have really had ma named a lot of this. i am sure you are familiar with the work of d-nd for example, who wrote things such as the american empire and years before that, john neuhaus, one of my favorite writers wrote in imperial america and other books have dealt with this with an unusual background in the sense that i spent 42 years in the government and the state department, defense department and th
follow closely. he was nominated to be the cia director in 1991, and as an obama supporter, i was shocked to find out that he was going to be kept on as the secretary of defense. what he told people, i found, and it was a major reasoning for why i wanted to write this book, what he said is that we are moving towards a smaller military. one that will do fewer things than be able to go fewer places, which he thought was a terrible thing and he added that he didn't want to be a part of that kind of a system that is going to retrench. my feeling has always been that we need a smaller military that will do fewer things and go to fewer places. so that is the kind of book that i wanted to write. i thought that i should do it even though others have mined a lot of this. i'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the works who wrote things like the american empire and 10 years before that, john neuhaus, one of my favorite new york writers, wrote imperial america. other books have dealt with this. the background and ascends, i have spent 42 years in the government beyond the state department, defense
's use of torture and for those controversial leaks reportedly from the obama white house. in his questionnaire for the senate committee, brennan admits he was interviewed about, quote, possible unauthorized disclosures of information to reporters about cyberattacks against iran and possible unauthorized disclosures of information to reporters about a foiled bomb plot tied to al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. let's bring in the political panel, chris anders, senior legislative counsel and michael isikoff. michael, a lot happened certainly since you broke that news of what was in this memo including this move by the white house. what do we make of at least what we're seeing right before bren anna nicole's confirmation hearing in regards to the white house's latest move here? >> well, first of all, it was an important step that the white house took because until last night, the official position of the administration is they couldn't even confirm or deny the existence of such a memo. in fact, they said that it's in and of itself was a classified matter so by putting out the stateme
have appeared in an oscar. was this a hit? >> i loved michelle obama, and i thought this was really a horrible idea. it just felt wrong. it felt like another universe entering in there. i mean oscar -- movies are pretend. this was like -- i don't know. all the formality and the guards behind her. and it seemed creepy to me. and pairing her with jack nicholson? >> that was interesting. definitely gave him some cover. but quickly, would it have worked better obviously if she had been there? would it have worked if she was there? >> i don't think she should have been there. she doesn't belong there. hollywood has its own royalty. it has its own first ladies and first men. that's what the evening is about. oh, daniel day lewis, a god, a god. absolutely a god. and he was slightful. he was funnier than seth macfarlane. >> david edelstein, great to have you with us. >> see you next year. >> yes, you will. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening. the only thing that is going to top yours and david edelstein's take at the oscars last n
leave act with the national >> four years ago resident obama traveled to indiana to sell his economic stimulus plan. we are asking for you to give us your view. welcome to this addition of the washington journal. we want to know from you what is your view of the economic recovery the president talked about four years ago. here are the numbers -- you can also reach out to us via social media. the address is on the screen. for twitter, the address is cspanwj. pan.book.com/c-spas or you can e-mail journal@c- span.org. we begin by talking about the speech that the president made four years ago in elkhart, indiana. it is part of the nbc news elkhart project. we will talk more about that. we want to talk to you about your view of the economic recovery. our first call comes from randy and new hampshire on our line for independence. caller: how are you guys this morning? things are going downhill fast. we are in this huge crisis. the recession is going on and on. we are lucky that we are not in worse shape in a severe depression. the banks keep doing business. things need to change fast. host
the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after a bipartisan group of 11 senators led by democratic senator ron wyden of oregon called for more insight into the government's legal rationale for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator wyden said on twitter, "every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them." this followed the leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing criteria required for such a strike. this is all unfolding before today's senate confirmation hearing for john brennan, nominated to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan
continued and robust ly expanded under president obama. just last month in his second inaugural address president obama called for an inlasting p does not require perpetual war, but that is what this administration has largely institutionalized. this week, michael isikoff got a hold of a secret department of justice memo which outlines the legal basis for the administration to use legal force in count terrorism tactics even against american citizens. this is the provocation for use of force and one that trumps constitutional protections and it goes further that the military can engage in a preemptive attack even without clear evidence that a specific p attack is eminent. while we can be sure that a mere territorial dispute will not lead our troops back into the trenches burk the trenches, but the explanation of what constitutes a preemptive strike, we are left of asking, what will get us out of war? and joining us is roulajabril, and professor of law at syracuse university, and the chairman of the project against unjust crimes to end humanity, and the editor of "time" magazine which is

've seen obama is free to speak his mind in a way that presidents are able to do when they're never going to face the voters again and yes, he'll talk about unity, which has been a lifelong theme for owe ba that but i think he would be remiss if he didn't mention something about the controversy surrounding this group, even if it's in a subtle way. >> do you expect that to happen, abby? >> i think as we saw at the inauguration as he hit paul ryan on some of his statements, i think he'll do that in a similar way but i think he'll use the platform to talk about what unites us as americans, what unites us through religious leaders, they're all under the same roof believing in something bigger than themselves and focus on equality and stay away from making them totally angry. >> that would be the headline coming out of the prayer breakfast. >> mr. sacorides what do you think? >> it is fine and good to talk about common ground on the occasion of the national prayer breakfast but it's also important to talk about how the fact that in this country, we're for equality, that's what our founding fat

a bit about the obama administration's secret program of targeted killing of suspected terrorists. a small number of those targeted and killed have been american citizens while some unconfirmed number of those killed in yelm, pakistan and elsewhere have been innocent civilians, mothers, children, young and old men in the wrong place at the wrong time. they have implement add rigorous screening process at the white house deciding who ends up on the list. the president approaches the program with solemnity and care and the policy has been efficient and effective in decimating al qaeda and other terrorist groups. it's been said, quote, the enemy is really, really struggling. these atakes have produced the broadest, deepest, and most rapid reduction in al qaeda senior leadership that we've seen in several years. my partner michael isikoff outfound a memo that outlines why they believe they have the legal thoort authority to use force. at thursday's confirmation hearings for his nomination to head up the cia, white house counterterrorism director raised questions about the memo and the
white president obama invades the press corps, yesterday the fearless leader took time out of the busy golf schedule to call into the radio show to talk about the looming sequester cuts and during the hard hitting interview, president obama says all republicans care about are the evil rascally rich people. and you can't make this stuff up. listen to this. >> and in speaker boehner is out there in the wall street journal and understand the impact. and i don't understand why anyone would risk this when it will impact so many people across economic lines, racial lines, party lines, i mean, it's just going to be something that hits everybody. >> well, my sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations. and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over coasting tax loopholes and that's the thing that binds their party together at this point. and this is a major argument, obviously, we've been having for the last three years. >> oh, president demagogue strikes again. is
